Grey-headed fish eagle fishing action sequence

posted in: bird, Grey-headed fish eagle | 0

Shahrul Kamal celebrated Singapore’s 57th birthday on 9th August 2022.

After 2 years of failures, misses, other challenges and constraints, he finally witnessed and photographed our beloved Singaporean born raptor, the wonderful grey-headed fish eagle ( Haliaeetus ichthyaetus) in full action, after just 20 minutes of waiting.
He is happy to share this 11-set sequence with nature lovers. The pictures are self-explanatory.
This eagle is a rare resident breeder and explains Shahrul’s exhilaration.
